Big Tunes w/ Undercover

A mixed bag here! Some big new rocksteady riddim action, cop this WHOLE riddim peeps, some wicked vocals on big lineup including Tanya Stephens! The Man of the Living is a killer riddim, the soul sample in that one is CRAZY! I would love to know what it is. Stop that Sound returns 5 years after the fact to another huge sound murdering lineup. Mean, we are getting our Deadly Hunter dubplate voiced tommorow pon that riddim! That leads us to some sweet UK soundsystem digi roots from Digital Dubs, Subactive and Mungos Hi Fi! The 90s riddim follows with Chronixx's Odd Ras, a  tune Rodigan has boldly claimed the most original song of the year/decade type thing. Last but not least is some blazing JA dancehall action seeing the dons Busy, Beenie, Sea Paul and Mega Banton tear tings up! Big Tunes!
